Nice Paint job, Laurie. :)

And I totally agree with you!

Larry Jones said...

I see by your smile in the second picture that you prefer the soundproof helmet method. Good, nonconfrontational Laurie.

Marinade Dave said...

Someone needs to come up with Browntooth technology so instead of putting it in your ear, it goes up your...

I guess it would have to vibrate, since there's no hearing down there.

Very private conversations, though.

OMG; I JUST got back from a long sit in a doctor's office, whereupon a woman made so many phone calls so loudly (discussing teddy bear angels that played silent night, nonetheless) that I whipped a little tiny journal out of my book and vented nasty things like "shut up! shut up!" until my name was called.

It's all I could do, since I didn't have a death ray with me.

Nomad said...

it is a good start :lol:

Rhonda said...

Can I use my cell phone car charger to charge my deathray batteries?

Oooh...Can I have my truck retrofitted with a deathray for those ninnies who cannot drive and talk at the same time?

Richard said...

My wife is a teacher, and I have taken her advice at work. If my employees are on their cell phone on the floor (restaurant) I take their phones and lock them in my safe. They can have them back at the end of the shift. Noone has complained yet, since policy is that they are not supposed to have them there in the first place. First person to complain will be the first one unemployed.

Serena Joy said...

I'd go for the death ray myself. Too much noise makes me really cranky, and helmets mess up my hair.:)

Lorna said...

My dear, I suppose you were on painkillers---the recalledkind---when you received this vision?

se7en said...

I say just shoot 'em and be done with it! Yeah!

Comfort Addict said...

I think that they should use the Cone of Silence. I especially hate the people who use the hallway outside my office as if it were a break area.

Peggy said...

Remember "Get Smart" and the "Cone of Silence"?

Peggy said...

Oh, damn -- comfort addict beat me to it! Remind me not to drink Mango-Ginger Margaritas before I post!

Laurie said...

Johnny - Thanks!

Jen - :)

Larry - Nonconfrontational is my mantra.

Dave - The people who already talk out of their asses will be way ahead of the game.

Gnight Girl - I shoot the bird below car window level so nobody will shoot me.

Nomad - :)

Rhonda - The Death Ray uses two triple A's...patent pending.

Richard - Good for you!

Serena - I'll put you on the Death Ray 4000 mailing list.

Lorna - smxxylke...Did I say that out loud?

Se7en - Yeah, to hell with the helmet.

Comfort Addict and Peggy - I loved Get Smart.

Peggy (Part 2) - I love mango margaritas. I'm not sure about the ginger part though.

Laurie, I haven't seen you in a while--I see you've changed your hairstyle...as well as your skin tone. You seem to pull it off, but you really should do something about that awful temper.

Laurie said...

Roger Dodger - I've been tanning and I got a weave. I'm trying to control the temper with tequila but that just seems to make things worse. Perhaps I should eat the worm.

JerseyTjej said...

EW, my least favorite thing...I normally think to myself, " If you are so damn important, why don't you go and conduct your business somewhere else..." Other than that (and chanting shut up!! shut up!!) put me down for a deathray and 2 bottles of acetaminophen...

Laurie said...

Jersey - I'll rush you to the top of the Death Ray 4000 list since you're still recuperating from knee surgery and really shouldn't be chasing loud cell phone talkers.
